  1. Love this, sheer quality and a definite nod towards fodera.
  2. The mesa subway 115 seems a lovely cab, top notch build quality, compact and light weight....but my oh my, have you seen the price...OUCH
  3. Yes, I listened to these as well!... they both sound good but to my ears, the driver has a tone more to my liking.
  4. I am in the same position as yourself, although my bass is a lakland 5501....same pickups and preamp as the cort. After doing some research, it would appear that the preamp is more of a weak link. One guy installed the mk5's along with the usa bart preamp and ended up putting the cheapo mk1 pickups back in(along with the usa preamp!!)...the mk1's are i think split/reverse P style so with that in mind, fed with a decent pre, could sound good. I myself are looking towards the john east uni-pre 5....i may change pickups at a later date...we will see! Anyway, good luck with the mods and let us all know what you think when done.
  5. Yes, apparently reverse split coil which should serve to give a tighter bottom end.... going to upgrade the pre first and if I feel the pickup's need replacing can do it at a later date.... thinking of the east uni-pre.
  6. thanks for the comments folks!.....looking on youtube, there is a guy who has fitted aguilar super splits along with an aguilar obp3 preamp to his 55-01.....listening to the bass firstly with the cheapo bartolinl mk1 and then with the super splits (both with the obp3) i have to conclude, i prefer the el-cheapo bart mk1s....sounds cleaner to me and i think the mk1s suit the preamp.....what do you think?
  7. Just sold Andy a sadowsky a preamp, deal went very smoothly and he is a total gent, highly recommended....thanks again 👍
  8. Come on folks.... John East uni-pre maybe?
  9. You are best with at least 500 Watts into 8 ohms....the barefaced driver is loosely based around the eminence kappalite 3012lf.... fantastic driver, but really needs to be driven.
  10. Going to have my Ray painted in this colour.....I can get the proper paint, but it is expensive, so with that, is there an equivalent colour available, if so, what is the paint code? Cheers

  12. I had a sr 2405w with the low gloss finish....didn't have it long, not really my cup of tea, it also struck me that in time there would be shiny patches in the finish where your arm/fingers rest when playing.....Also, regarding the setup, i had to have it fret dressed as it had some uneven frets, even after that it wouldn't take low set-up.....sorry for the rant, mine may have been a friday night bass lol
